St. Patrick’s Day Whoopie Pies

 St. Patrick’s Day Whoopie Pies

Growing up in Missouri we had a local Amish community and let me tell you, the homemade Whoopie Pies were to die for. While I don’t eat them nearly as often as I used to, they are a delicious treat when we go to Jamesport for a treat. But now instead of making the drive, we just whip them, but in March we are all about St. Patrick’s Day!

St Patrick Whoopie Pies

Ingredients needed for the cake:

Vanilla cake mix + all the ingredients to make it
1 tbsp cocoa powder
¼ tsp Kelly green gel food coloring
Shamrock Whoopie Pies

Ingredients for buttercream filling:


½ stick butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar
2-3 tbsp milk

Tools needed:
Rectangular pan (13 x 9)
Parchment paper
4 leaf clover cookie cutter

Yields: 6 to 8 whoopie pies

Shamrock Whoopie Pies

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat your oven according to the cake mix’s directions.

Start mixing your cake mix and its ingredients. Once the cake batter has formed, add cocoa powder and mix until completely incorporated.

Using a spatula, spread your cake batter onto your lined baking sheet. Bake according to the box’s directions.

To make the buttercream, beat together butter, sugar and milk on medium speed. Gradually increase the speed to high.

Once the ingredients are combined and form semi-stiff peaks, scoop into a piping bag.

Remove cake from oven and allow to cool. Using your cookie cutter, cut out 4-leaf clover shapes and save the scraps for snacking! If you are lucky enough to have scraps leftover after you make the cookies throw some whipped cream on it and have a dessert to go with your dessert. (I’m all about dessert!)

Flip over each shaped cake (they look better from the underside and are easier to frost this way).

Frost half of your shaped cakes and then sandwich with another unfrosted piece.

Serve and enjoy! Don’t forget to check out our St. Patrick’s Day Selfie Scavenger Hunt and of course all of the other delicious St. Pat’s Day treats too!
